Can I apply for an asylum visa?: I am a Chinese, currently holding a temporary working visa in New Zealand ( to be expired in Sep 2018).
I have two children, born in 2007 in Shanghai, and in 2010 in HONGKONG. I divorced with my exhusband in 2014 after I came to New Zealand with my younger son who is holding a HK passport.

I was dismissed from my previous job in 2009 because of one-child policy of China at that time, also got the pressure from local authority of my residence in Shanghai. That is why I decided to give birth to my second child in Hongkong.
Because I am holding temporary working visa, I feel it is difficult for me to go back to China. One of the main reason is heavy fines I am going to pay if I go back.

Thanks for your feedback

Kyndra’s answer: I suggest you speak one-on-one with an experienced immigration attorney. More facts are needed to determine whether you qualify for asylum.

Kyndra’s answer: Based on what you have stated your file has been reopened but not granted. I suggest you retain an experienced experienced immigration attorney to assist you from this point. If your case is denied you may be referred to the immigration court for removal proceedings or left in a state of limbo.

How long will it possibly take for an asylum applicant to be interviewed ?: I applied for asylum May 15th of 2014. Since then, I never heard back from San Francisco office. I went there several times to inquire about my case but I always get the "still processing" answer. However, on my last trip there (Sep 2016), they explained that my security checks never came back and hence, they can't schedule an interview. I have 2 immigration attorneys and both wrote to the office many times but they end up with nothing. I'm a doctor, I have successfully finished all the US licensing exams but I can't be hired for training by hospitals due to my immigration status being perceived as unstable. I'm beginning to lose hope, feeling depressed and don't know when and how this wait would end.

Kyndra’s answer: You have two attorneys. They are familiar with the circumstances of your case and the best persons to deal with the asylum office.
You have not stated any basis for expediting your file so you must wait in line behind all other applicants.
